Consistency

Consistency.

The very word makes me shudder. It’s certainly not one of my strengths.

Or am I being too hard on myself?  

After all, I get up every day and go through a personal hygiene routine that hasn’t varied since I was about 12.

So perhaps it’s more about the challenge of being consistent long enough to make a dent in the Universe?

Or about the consequences of not fulfilling a certain set of tasks consistently?

I shared a quote meme the other day that might offer an insight.

You would think that it would, after all, be fairly easy to develop a consistent habit of ordinary habits if you knew, for sure, that it was 100% going to work.  If it was going to deliver extraordinary results. Or even just your desired results (or better).

If you knew that writing a one-page blog post every day, on a topic of interest to your target market, would bring you an endless stream of visits from your ideal clients (like it has one of my earliest business coaches Chris Barrow), would you do it?

Would you be consistent?  Can I be with my new blogging habit?

If you knew that saving £50 a month for the next 15-20 years or so, investing it to gain an average return of 10% per annum, would make you a millionaire, would you do it?

It would, but so many don’t.  

£50 a month is the amount I started a SIPP with when I was about 26.  But life changed, my personal finances went up and down and I didn’t stick at it, only lasting about a year and then I forgot all about it.  When I was 55 I was very surprised when those early few £50’s had turned into £27,000.  Which I then had to pay tax on, of course, but that’s another story.

I think the best way to be consistent with this new blogging habit is to batch-write them.  

Monday mornings, that sounds good.

Hopefully, I’ll get in the flow then.

Flow is good.
